Dream House

If you haven't been invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding in Rhinebeck this weekend (or even if you have), next weekend you can learn all about the house where she spent her adolescence.

On Saturday, August 7, Ulysses Grant Dietz, Senior Curator of Decorative Arts at the Newark Museum, will be in Hudson to talk about his book Dream House: The White House as an American Home. The book tells the story of the White House from the viewpoint of the presidents and first ladies who have lived there and looks at the mansion in the context of American house design and decoration.

The event is sponsored by Historic Hudson and takes place at 6 p.m at Stair Galleries, 549 Warren Street. The talk will be followed by a reception. A contribution of $10 to Historic Hudson is requested.
